Take heart fellow Nintendo console owners, Mojang's popular Minecraft is finally making it's way to the Wii U, bringing with it all the advantages that the console has to offer (and plenty of add-on packs to boot). Come inside to learn more!
If you're a fan of Minecraft, you likely already have a version of it on some device, but come December 17th, you'll be able to add the Wii U to the list of places you can play it. It'll feature off-screen play (so you can do everything from the controller), as well as touch screen controls. Both of these things seem well suited to Minecraft, and this announcement means that Microsoft, who owns Mojang, is now working with Both Sony and Nintendo. It's an interesting crossover, that we haven't seen much of before:
Mojang’s video game phenomenon Minecraft launches worldwide on Nintendo’s Wii U home console on Dec. »

Fringe, Supernatural, Bob's Burgers... zombies pop up in all kinds of surprising places. Remember that time Ramsay Street was invaded?
Back in the 80s and 90s, the only groups regularly enjoying zombie movies were habitually stoned students, young lads looking to prove their mettle by lobbing VHS grenades of gore at each other's minds, and great sweating giants with mutton-chops corseted into two-sizes-too-small Iron Maiden T-shirts. Very few couples partook of the genre; liver-ripping and eye-gouging was rarely seen as the essential romantic complement to an evening entwined on the couch.
Aside from George A Romero’s satirical side-swipes at society, the majority of zombie movies were gloriously nasty, schlocky yuck-fests, with names like ‘Return Of The Great Zombie Intenstine Carnival III’, 'Zombies! Zombies, Oh, Christ Zombies, They're Eating My Eyes!' and ‘I Claw-hammered My Zombie Grandma’S Head Off’. Anyone with access to a video camera, »

Superhero Alter Ego
You know how it is. You’re promoting your new film, you get asked questions about whether you’ll have a cameo in the new Star Wars movie, and then you accidentally reveal Daniel Craig will appear as a Stormtrooper. If the Newsletter had a penny…
“The name’s Trooper. Storm Trooper.”
That’s what Simon Pegg appeared to do this week. Although he then retracted his statement, saying it was just a load of Sith. What is confirmed, though, is the latest actor for Star Wars Anthology movie Rogue One – Elysium’s Diego Luna. For additional Star Wars goodness, »

Natural women unite: "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" will be adapted into a feature film. The recent hit Broadway musical earned star Jessie Mueller a Tony and should be just as thrilling as a movie since it features so many classic Carole King jams. "It's Too Late" is the definitive breakup anthem of all time, everyone. But just one thing: Who the hell is going to play Carole King? I support the idea of Jessie Mueller reprising her stage role, but Streisand-type stage-to-screen moves remain pretty rare. I was personally shocked when Samantha Barks ended up in the film version of "Les Miz" after starring in London's West End production. Her face should be printed on all European currency for achieving that milestone. So just in case Mueller doesn't get to fly her tapestry on the silver screen, here are a couple of suggestions that seem feasible. Emily Blunt I »
